It was hanging by a thread!

On my walk through the neighborhood today I saw this concrete post.


It was hanging by a thread.

I pointed it out to the tall person and asked him why the post had wilted. He shook his head and said he didn’t know but added that perhaps someone had tried to knock it down but its steel core had defeated them. He went on to say that it reminded him of something that the American journalist Max Lerner once said, “The turning point in the process of growing up is when you discover the core of strength within you that survives all hurt.”

Hmm. I understand the wisdom that you are trying to convey tall person but the post is now growing down, not up.

  1. Sweet Bassa we think that post could use some help to get back up, what do you think? Hugs and nose kisses

  2. Love the quote. Had to tweet it. It is all about core strengths. I am working on understanding that now (#StrengthFinders) Thanks for all your insights.
